Atanasius Gut Oggau Atanasius Gut Oggau

Gut Oggau is a 13 hectares Austrian wine estate located in the province of Burgenland by the Lake Neusiedl. The estate is today run by Eduard Tscheppe  – son of a winemaker – and his wife Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselböck – daughter of a 2 Michelin stars Austrian restaurant owner –  who took over the estate several years ago. 

The vineyards are cultivated according to biodynamic principles (Demeter certified) with traditional winemaking methods in the cellar. Also, each wine is vinified with the grapes coming from a single plot, allowing a wide range of authentic and different flavour profiles in the wines. Each cuvée is named after a fictional character created by Jung von Matt (German designer) and is integrated in a family tree (grandparent, parents and children).  The faces of the characters adorn the bottles and are deigned to express in the character of the face, the personality of the wine.  Stephanie and Eduard are obsessed with quality, their aim is to achieve a natural balance in the vineyard and process the grapes as gently as possible, allowing them to make the best use of their vineyard's strength. With only 15 to 18,000 bottles a year for the entire estate (now making 8 different cuvée), Gut Oggau's wines are some of the most sought after wines in Austria. Complex and original, it is no surprise to find the wines in some of the best restaurants of Europe (London or Paris for instance).

Atanasius is a blend of Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch fermented in stainless steel with no oak ageing, the character is of a wine whose potential is yet to be realised although its complex and multi layered profile is already evident in the wine.  Seriously fresh and very fruity and moreish, the wine's personlity is represented very well by the 'Andy Murray' look alike image on the label!!
